A WOLF CALLED ROMEO -- a lyrical, thoughtful account of one community's poignant encounter with a wolf that liked to play with dogs
A Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Jans (2015, Mariner Books; 288 pages)
This account of the black wolf that frequented the Mendenhall Glacier area in Juneau for 7 years was interesting and informative. Jans provides firsthand experience with Romeo and considerable documentation of wolf/wildlife biology. He presents a fairly unbiased view of both sides from the community with compassion and humor. While I enjoy Jans’s writing, I had a particular interest in this book as I had the good fortune of encountering him myself on a trip to the Mendenhall. Standing 20 feet from a living, breathing, wild wolf is an experience not soon forgotten.
